2019 - 'Humans Wanted' - Reshaping and Retaining the Workforce
Join the Burnaby Board of Trade for this insightful breakfast on the future of work, as we welcome the Vice President of RBC John Stackhouse, for this very special disruption breakfast: 'Humans Wanted' event.
This event will discuss how employers will need to rethink the way they hire, retrain and reshape the workforce, how educators need to think beyond degrees and certificates, and how governments need to take advantage of the world of instant information to harness the coming skills revolution.
This dialogue will shed light on the critical area that we are facing today: we are living through an era of radical change, with the latest advancements in artificial intelligence and automation transforming the way we work. In the coming decade, hall of all jobs will be disrupted by technology and automation---some will change dramatically while others will disappear completely and be replaced by jobs yet to be invented.
This engaging talk will help you stay ahead of these trends and provide valuable insight into our changing workforce and labour market.
